"1/35 German Tank Destroyer Elefant"
shaneoye33 (Spokane, Wa.)
This rare tank the German army used in the Battle of Kursk and in northern Italy after the italians surendered to the Allies, this is a fun build, it took me about 35 hours over a 3 week period, building, painting and detailing ect. i also added the new Zimmerit stick on coating offered by the Hobbylinc store, and i also added the 88mm Pak43 metal gun barrel, these really makes the tank look realistic.

"The model goes together very well but...."
no Zimmerit on the hull?...The model has the post Battle of Kursk factory modifications such as the MG34 gun on the front and the commander's cupola. The addition of zimmerit would have been a standard part of these factory modifications. I shouldn't have to mess around with a sheet of after market Tamiya zimmerit stickers or a can of putty to add this type of realism to a model. I would recomment either the Dragon 6317 Ferdinand kit for the pre Battle of Kursk version or the Dragon 6465 Elefant kit which is post Battle of Kursk and has the zimmerit molded right on the hull.

"Another great hit by Tamiya"

I started this after building the Nashorn. Quite a difference between them. The Elefant is bigger but not as many parts as it doesn't have an open fighting compartment. It went together so well I'm a little disappointed that I don't have anything to gripe about, that's my nature. It took about half the time to build as it took for the Nashorn. Here's a suggestion. Get the Nashorn and Elefant kits. Build the Nashorn first then the Elefant. You'll be amazed at how quickly the Elefant goes together. Would recommend this kit for any level of modeler with possibly a little help with beginners on the treads, a lot of parts for them attention may wander.

"Good build"
Absolutely loved putting this model together. Only issue was gun locking mechanism, it was a little difficult
